Celebrated as one of the most transformative actors of contemporary cinema, the British screen icon Gary Oldman seemingly has the chameleon-like capabilities to take on any role he likes. A member of the ‘Brit Pack’, a name given to a group of respected upcoming British actors in the late 1980s that included Colin Firth, Tim Roth, and Daniel Day-Lewis, Oldman has arguably become the most successful of the bunch. 
A truly talented character, Oldman has had the chance to depict a number of historical figures, including Ludwig van Beethoven, Sid Vicious, Joe Orton, and Winston Churchill. Speaking to Daily Actor about his approach to such roles back in 2017, the actor stated: “I have a relatively good ear and can do a few impressions of people. I don’t study them, but I think what happens with an impressionist is that they’re looking at one particular source”. 
Boasting an impressive filmography that includes collaborations with the likes of Mike Leigh, Francis Ford Coppola, Luc Besson, David Fincher, Christopher Nolan, and many more, Oldman has certainly developed an impressive knowledge of the silver screen. Having also directed the impressive 1997 movie Nil by Mouth, Oldman is highly qualified to pick out ten of the greatest movies ever made. 
Naming his picks in the most recent edition of Sight and Sound magazine in their decennial poll of the 100 greatest movies ever made, Oldman named a list that included such filmmakers as François Truffaut, Federico Fellini, Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, Roberto Rossellini, and John Cassavetes. 
When it comes to Fellini, it is the 1963 classic 8 ½ that Oldman opts for. This surrealist drama (with a liberal sprinkling of comedy) directed by the acclaimed Italian filmmaker follows filmmaker Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni) in his struggles with creative stasis as he attempts to get a new movie off the ground. Considered a classic of European cinema, 8 ½ is best known for its iconic dream sequence.
Elsewhere, Oldman chooses the sexy Wong Kar-wai film In the Mood For Love as another film he considers an undisputed classic. Released at the turn of the new millennium, Kar-wai‘s film is one of the sexiest movies of all time, despite not even showing the suggestion of bare skin. Creating a truly seductive and romantically-charged atmosphere, the Hong Kong film director tells a poignant love story about beauty, lust, temptation, and loyalty.
Take a look at Oldman’s top 10 list in its entirety below. 
The influential American filmmaker Stanley Kubrick seems to make it onto almost every single list of the greatest movies of all time, and Oldman’s picks are no different. Whilst there is a wealth of films to choose from, Oldman picks out the 1964 anti-war satire Dr. Strangelove, starring Peter Sellers, which tells the story of an American Brigadier who puts the world on the verge of a nuclear catastrophe and the useless politicians who try and prevent disaster.
